This article explores the importance of morality, gender, and desire for C. L. R. James's self-representation as a revolutionary intellectual. Social scientific theories that depict radicalism as a one-way Caribbean export to the United Kingdom and the United States have obscured shared traditions across the modern Atlantic world. Throughout his transatlantic migrations from 1932 to 1952, James trafficked in moral frameworks grounded in heterosexist lessons of discipline, loyalty and self-denial. As a public intellectual, he championed the Puritan ethics of his protestant middle-class family in colonial Trinidad. In his private life, James had an unsteady orientation to their moral compass. The historiography of the Black Radical Tradition has erased women and gender from the horizons of revolutionary action. The intimacies of radical political organizing in the United Kingdom and the United States led James to revise, reject, and reproduce patriarchal values of his colonial upbringing. During the 1940s and 1950s he co-founded the Johnson-Forest Tendency, an interracial, intergenerational organization that theorized and organized for the liberation of women, youth and workers. Despite the Tendency's intersectional agenda, James concentrated political power within himself through the sexual domination of women. Confronting a cold war government intent on deporting him, James staked his claim for US citizenship on the body of his second wife Constance Webb. An absent husband and authoritarian political leader, James denied his political affiliations and marketed himself to immigration officials as a moral patriarch. In crafting his intellectual legacies, he censored women from his revolutionary biography.

During the tumultuous 1950s in America, sex was as threatening to the nation’s moral order as communism. New York was the capital of the post–World War II world and the epicenter of a fierce culture war over music, theatre, movies, fashion, and literature, as well as birth control, homosexuality, adolescent sex, pornography, and prostitution. Over the last half-century, America’s social life—especially notions of culture, sexuality, and politics—has fundamentally changed, and what were once sinful or subversive sexual practices have been integrated into the marketplace, irreversibly changing American moral values; the once illicit has become an industry of more than $50 billion. Drawing on first-person interviews, unpublished memoirs, newspaper accounts, contemporary studies, government documents, and recent scholarship, Sin, Sex & Subversion argues that “deviant” sexuality was subversive, and that unique New York “outsiders” of the 1950s set the stage for the following decades and the world we know today. In each chapter, author David Rosen examines a critical moral issue through an in-depth profile of figures such as Liberace, Samuel Roth, Bettie Page, the Rosenbergs, and others. Through these individuals, Rosen shows how those who operated outside the law or who challenged popular values, even if they were silenced in their time, ended up paving the way for a new normal.

What do the New Testament writers actually teach about (1) the poor, (2) women, and (3) sexual minorities? Why do traditional commentaries and introductions so often ignore or treat superficially such burning questions churches grapple with today? Must we seek out specialized monographs to get adequate information and satisfactory answers in each area? At last, in a single volume Tom Hanks brings together the fruit of decades of study, examining each New Testament book in each of these three crucial areas, which often overlap in human experience (Latin American male liberation theologians often forget that the option for the poor may involve solidarity with a lesbian of color who wants to be ordained!). Building on his pioneering study on oppression and poverty in Biblical theology (Orbis 1984; Wipf 2000) and his Anchor Bible Dictionary article on Poverty in the New Testament (which the New York Times review commended for its balance), Hanks analyzes the teaching of each New Testament book regarding the main cause of poverty (oppression) and the variety of liberating Christian responses. Feminist and womanist studies are mined to highlight the presence/absence and role/leadership of women in each New Testament book. The remarkable absence of modern notions of family and family values in the New Testament books is emphasized, along with the prominence of sexual minorities as authors and subjects of the New Testament books. L. William Countryman comments regarding the poor, women and sexual minorities: Tom Hanks has brought these issues to the exegesis of the New Testament in a sustained and orderly fashion. He demonstrates beyond question that most of the New Testament authors were not interested in maintaining the household structures of the ancient Mediterranean and that, indeed, most of the individuals presented in the New Testament documents would not have seemed to be models of 'family values' either in their time or todayÉ.The works of Hanks and [Theodore W.] Jennings, with their detailed and careful argumentation, show that excellent work is being done in this vein. However surprising their conclusions may be to casual readers (or offensive to readers protecting what they conceive as orthodoxy), they are, in fact, deeply grounded in attentive scholarly work (Dirt, Greed & Sex, Minneapolis: Fortress, 2007, p. 251-252).

Since its initial publication in 1990, this book has become a key work of contemporary feminist theory, and an essential work for anyone interested in the study of gender, queer theory, or the politics of sexuality in culture. This is the text where the author began to advance the ideas that would go on to take life as "performativity theory," as well as some of the first articulations of the possibility for subversive gender practices. Overall, this book offers a powerful critique of heteronormativity and of the function of gender in the modern world.

"This work makes the counter-intuitive argument that contemporary "sex panics" in a variety of political and social arenas are symptoms of queerphobia, even when the panic in question presents itself as being about something else (e.g., sex trafficking, incest, child abuse), and, moreover, that liberal values and ideologies collude in creating and perpetuating these queerphobic panics. In the case studies that populate the book's six body chapters (child molester panics, sex trafficking panics, incest panics, transgender panics, queer kids, pedagogy panics), Ian Barnard is concerned not so much with looking at the overt homophobia and transphobia that are the more obvious objects of anti-homophobic and anti-transphobic analysis as in excavating their significant traces in a neo-liberal culture that has supposedly demonstrated its civility by its embrace of diversity, renunciation of its homophobic past, and attentiveness to the transgender revolution that is sweeping popular, media, and political culture in the US and elsewhere"--

An analysis of sex and gender in music videos, covering everyone from Beyonce to Madonna, Nine Inch Nails to Mykki Blanco. In Justify My Love, Ryann Donnelly explores sex and gender in one of the most widely consumed art forms of our age -- the music video. Through an autobiographical reckoning with the author's life in a band and collaboration with past lovers, and a close analysis of the erotic iconography of music videos, Justify My Love tells the subversive history of this medium, from the inception of MTV in 1981 through to the 2010s. Covering everything from Lady Gaga and Beyonce to Nine Inch Nails and George Michael, Justify My Love shows how subversion became mainstream, and how marginalized voices shaped some of the biggest music videos of the last thirty years.

A Sociology of Sex and Sexuality offers an historical sociological analysis of ideas about expressions of sexual desire, combining both primary and secondary historical and theoretical material with original research and popular imagery in the contemporary context. While some reference is made to the sexual ideology of Classical Antiquity and of early Christianity, the major focus of the book is on the development of ideas about sex and sexuality in the context of modernity. It questions the widespread assumption that the anxieties and fears associated with old sexual mores have been overcome in the late twentieth century context, and asks whether the discourses of Queer sexual politics have successfully fractured the binary categories of heterosexuality and homosexuality. -- Back cover.

This is an exciting and original study of the links between gender and politics in the work of six important contemporary women writers from Argentina and Uruguay. Through detailed and theoretically sophisticated discussions of texts by six key writers - Luisa Valenzuela, Marta Traba, Sylvia Molloy, and Reina Roffe (Argentina), and Cristina Peri Rossi and Armonia Somers (Uruguay) - Geofrey Kantaris shows how their writing of the 1980s, including their own critical and theoretical work, engages with, and often challenges, Western theories of the construction of gender and its relation to identity politics (notably psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and feminism). By situating their work within the political turmoil of the period - the brutal military dictatorships and the necessity of political or cultural exile - Kantaris is able to show how these texts signal a shift of cultural perspective in the Southern Cone, in which gender is no longer ignored in the construction of national and political narratives.

Think of all the hundreds of people from whom you learned about the world, and the hundreds of people from whom they learned about the world. Then throw in all the people who want to sell you something, and all the people who think it's perfectly okay to lie to you as long as they're "doing it for your own good." Pretty soon, you can start to see that your view of the world may very well be a copy, of a copy, of a copy, each one a little fuzzier than the one before. When you go looking for the original, you can find some pretty surprising things. Things like: -The police have no legal duty to protect you, from anything...ever. -The Establishment Clause (Freedom of Religion) clause of the First Amendment has never been violated a single time in the history of the United States. -People may be completely responsible for getting themselves into poverty, but cannot always be held responsible for getting themselves out. -When it comes to the problem of health care, health insurance is not the answer, it's the problem. You're invited to come along on one regular Joe's personal journey to the farthest reaches of the realm, mixing conversation, story telling, history and humor in a search for that most elusive of quarries, the truth.

Based on original field research, these essays reject broad assumptions about sexual equality and inequality, maintaining, rather, that the relationship of the sexes to each other must be explored in terms of the conflicts, tensions, and paradoxes that are at the heart of daily life in many societies.
